trips. we have to prepare for the future. let me close with a couple of quick thoughts. first i believe that our connecting community slogan it is real. we are the greatest city in the united states and we are an incredible city because our communities come together for our subway and for our giants. second, we have to do more. we have to make sure that we're taking care of not just our daily needs on muni and not just our daily needs for the pedestrians, our sierkists, those in cars, those that walk, but we have to make sure we're investing in the long-term projects, and lafltly i just want to say one thing. we know over the history of time great cities don't regret building subways. they regret not building them. thank you.

of attack you expect from a guy running for city council for the first time, not what you expect from the president. personal attack about an investment when talking about iran? i thought romney had the day. he looked presidential. president did not. that is the impression i think that is going to be left. >> mitt romney sounded more on the right and how will that play? >> well, i think those on the right left would have loved to have been belacose in the but will understand why romney did it. he stayed away from pit falls. he did not allow himself to be painted as a war amonger. it's what reagan understood in 1980 and did well. >> charms kraut hammer, thank you. >> he mentioned sequester, massive cuts to the dpeens department, the pentagon coming up on january 2. the president said tonight the sequester will not happen. that was a key moment. will now, white house campaign is back and saying in the spin room just behind you, pressed on this, he said repeatedly everyone in washington agrees that sequester quote should not happen. and asked again and said it should not happen. will not
